I have my 3rd brake light that lights up and says Monte Carlo SS, and I have a window banner.

I wanna take off the Monte Carlo SS on the sides and back, along with the rear bow-tie. I think it looks MUCH cleaner, and not only that, but I'm really tired of waxing the car with a Q-tip and toothpicks.

When my reverse lights are illuminated you can see them perfectly fine.

I upgraded the bulbs in the housing to a GE NightHawk bulb and you can see it.

You should do what I did to my Avalanche when I debadged. Replace the "badges" with vinyl. Not the MC SS badges, just the bowtie. If people don't know it'* an MC, eff em. But a nice vinyl bright silver bowtie would look sweet.

The tint turned out nice. Looking forward to some pictures after the claying/polishing/waxing.
